Hewlett-Packard Renews Platinum Sponsorship Investment in BDPA

Since 1939, Hewlett-Packard has been a leader in technology and corporate culture, inspiring innovators and entrepreneurs from around the globe. They haven't been a sponsor for that entire time ... but they are a sponsor now!
I am honored to announce Hewlett-Packard as a Platinum Level Sponsor. With the support of organizations like Hewlett-Packard, BDPA continues to bring quality programs and technological careers to its members through its local chapter communities. It is my pleasure to announce this sponsorship,” said National BDPA president Dr. Craig Brown.
HP is pleased with the sponsorship benefits that they have received from BDPA as well.
"National BDPA provides an environment for our youth to explore the realm of possibility when it comes to careers, challenges and opportunities in science and technology. I have seen firsthand how this type of environment instills confidence and fosters creativity. The students participating in BDPA today are investments in the IT professionals of tomorrow that will fuel innovation and drive business outcomes. HP is proud to support an organization that places such a high value on education and development of IT professionals. This is our fifth year as a Platinum Sponsor,” reported Jeff Henderson, HP executive director.
Founded in 1975, BDPA is the premier organization for African American professionals in the information technology industry. BDPA continues to bridge the digital divide by providing career growth and development opportunities for its members.
"As an HP employee, it has been and continues to be an honor to partner with National BDPA. Their commitment to advancing youth in technology, as well as providing opportunities to network with professionals in the IT industry throughout the country speaks volumes about the character of the organization,” stated Robert Gavin, HP business consultant. “BDPA fosters an environment of education, hands-on learning, and growth in many areas of technology for all its youth and adult members. Partnering with National BDPA has been one of the most rewarding endeavors of my professional career,” Mr. Gavin added.
